    I need help trying to figure out what to do with this sagging truck. Poll question.......If you had the truck and $2000 to spend what suspension would you put on it and why ?

    i would put a hook on my winch cable first off.. the previous setup sounds good but might swap some stiffer coils. the 885/6 are for the bumper and winch right?

    as far as I know 885, 886 are for gen 2 w/ bumper winch. as for gen 1's 881 no winch or bumper, 882 for bumper no winch, 883 bumper and winch

    Some 882 on new shocks for the front. (unless you want to run Coilovers) then an aal for the back with new shocks. Also consider things like rear brake line, Power steering rack bushing kit, and diff drop.

    Trust me, Your not the first to mention the lack of me having a hook.........soooooooo I ordered the $70 yellow hook to go on it.

    I want the suspension put on last week but I am unsure what I want. I want the good ride but don't wanna find out later I could have spent another $500 and made it lots better in some way

    start asking yourself what YOU really want outta a lift. a little clearance and agressive looking stance? or something you can really wheel and flex. i notice you have a 4 banger. so i wouldnt go 6 in and make your self a windplow. also do you wanna upsize tires or keep em closer to what you have. or slightly larger?

    A little lift would be ok, Not wanting 6 inches. Tire size now is ok 265/75/16 and I think thats as big as I can go with no rubbing. A little bigger would not matter as long as I don't have to cut on the truck and I dont want any rubbing issues. I wanna know more about the coilovers for the front. Someone told me OME was not that good of lift so I don't know what to do now.

    '95-'97 camouflaged, ARB bull bar, sliders, rear tube bumper, King coilovers with Icon neoprene condoms and a defenestrated sway bar, OME Rear Suspension: CS046R leafs/N85 shocks/NWOR greasable mounting stuff; S13WL Tundra calipers/pads/rotors, IPF H4 lenses and bulbs, IPF 968 DCG 100W fog lights, clapped out CB radio, Aussie-spec FJ60 inclinometer, ARB CKMA12 compressor; 4' Hi-Lift, deckplate mod/grey wire mod/dif breather extensions/dif drop, Duratrac tires, Sockmonkey bedside decals, boat cupholder
    Actually, I heard from ARB directly (I called when I was looking to put OME on my truck) and they said it's 880s for no winch or bumper, 881s for bumper, and 882s for both. But 881s can work with both.

    Just get OME 882s and either billy 5100s or Nitrocharger firm valve shocks.
